View Full Version : LPK
OK lets here some opinions on lower part kits.
Which one to buy and why.
Which one to avoid and why.
I think it really depends on how much you're looking to spend and what you are trying to do. I'm fully aware that there are a lot of DPMS haters here but I went with a DPMS LPK for my first build because it was $55, I already had a DPMS lower and I figured if I jacked it up I could just get another one. Everything was pretty straight foward and dropped right in no complaints as of yet. RRA and Stag make similar kits for the same price and Colt has one for about $100. I fully intend to replace the trigger and hammer, I just wanted something that works. The rest of the parts in the kit are going to be basically the same. I would suggest buying a kit in person and inspecting it to make sure you are getting what you want.
Just throwing in my 2 cents (I'm far from an expert just look at my posts)

Actually, they're are a lot of professional end-users, evaluators, contemplators, and shooters who tender opinion based upon their observations and experience.
The chips just happen to fall where they do.
I have a Stag LPK and an RRA LPK in DPMS lower receivers and they are both GTG but I liked the trigger in the RRA a little bit more.
I ordered two LMT lower parts kits from G&R. Just put one into a stripped Bushmaster lower last week. Very nice fit and finish.
I have had no problem with my 3 Ar's using bushmaster LPK's. Each gun has 2000+ rnds thru them. On my next build I was going to use the LMT kit. Let us know if ther is any differance.
I have installed both the DPMS and the Stag LPK. The Stag has better fit and finish. I also think it has a better trigger.
